I bought a pair of Suomi (Nokian) carbide studded tires five years-ago and they remain one of the better bike-related investments I've made. I ride all winter long, even in extremes (-20c), and these things just carry me along regardless of snow or ice build-up. The experience of studded tires in nasty climates is revelatory, it is truly astonishing: You just 'stick' to the road, even when riding on ice, and it awards one a sense of freedom that eludes description.
